What makes Phoebe and Her Unicorn so magical? Well, the unicorn, sure, but also, at the heart of this beloved comic strip (which turns seven years old today!) is the idea that true friends make the world brighter and one another better. To celebrate Phoebe and Marigold’s magical friendship, and the upcoming release of Unicorn Bowling, we picked out nine empowering messages from their ninth collection of comics.
1. Being yourself is a talent.
2. Looking good is all about feeling good.
3. Enjoy the slow parts.
4. Empathy is a superpower.
5. Without rain, nothing would grow.
6. You don’t have to like what people expect you to like…
7. …but it’s okay if you do!
8. Everyone should be treated like the unique individual they are.
9. Last but not least! When you feel small, friends make everything fit just right.
BONUS MESSAGE: Bowling, like all physical activities, should be practiced safely to avoid risk of injury.
That’s all for now from Phoebe and Marigold! For more magical moments, check out Unicorn Bowling, out 4/23!
